I always thought this style was called a "shag", and I even remember a few articles on the tv (such as friends 'behind the scenes' type shows, and even slow news days) reffering it as that, and saying how it was embarasing for women to go into the hair dressers and ask for a shag (as it is a term for sex in the UK), oh how they would laugh. Anyway, I also heard that Jennifer hated the hair style. I guess I'm gonna have to look this up to confirm.. --SnakeSeries 13:07, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Not sure if she hated the style from day one, but on the 100% Unofficial Friends in their own words DVD (from about 1999/2000) she expresses her annoyance that several years after she no longer wore it that way everyone was still talking about it. Timrollpickering 00:50, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
I don't think Jennifer Anniston's opinion has any bearing on whether or not 'Rachel' the hairstyle exists, but it should be added as a sidenote Zena Dhark…·°º•ø®@» 01:01, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
I am still confident that this is called a 'shag', there is a link in the Shag disambiguation page that goes to a non existant Shag (hairstyle) page. Anyway after one quick search on Yahoo (can't get google :() I found this [1] which is clearly the same as the "Rachel" haircut, except a little flatter which can be attributed to any given persons preference on style. The cut wasn't invented for the Rachel character, nor I am sure was she the first person to have it. This article should be moved to the Shag (hairstyle) page, and expanded to include what is apparently called a Short Shag [2]... yes... --SnakeSeries 07:44, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Junichiro Koizumi[edit]

Why is the prime minister of Japan linked in this article?-- 07:00, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

It was removed, so we still need to find one that will help.

I see one now --KJK::Hyperion 00:33, 23 December 2006 (UTC)
Amazing - Wikipedia prominently displays dozens of photos of pierced genitalia, yet not a single "suitable" photograph of Ms. Anniston's hairstyle from the early Friends years can be found. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:24, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi! Propably because those pictures that you refer to are posted by the owners of them, and are probably pictures of the posters themselves. But the pictures pertaining to "the Rachel" are most likely not from a public domain source and would require permission to be used here. For example, I realized this when I came to "Wikipedia" to read up on Marlee Matlin as I was looking at her beautiful face while I had an episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice" paused. When I got to the article, I was very disappointed with the picture chosen to represent her, for to me, it made her look like a man, rather the the beauty I saw on TV! So I read the credits for the picture and learned how it came to be. Thanks to that bit of data, now I know why the pictures of celebrities posted in "Wikipedia" aren't that flattering to them! Now come on, folks! I've taken pictures of celebrities and made them look good and I was just another fan at a convention! (Mercedes McNab comes to mind.) The rest of you should make bette efforts to make more flatterinng pictures! Now anyway, to get to your point, you might have to find a picture that isn't copyrighted, to be able to post it here and have it stay here. If you do find one that's free to use here, please make sure it is a flattering one! Thanks! ;-) LeoStarDragon1 (talk) 04:14, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

30 Rock reference[edit]

I add the 30 Rock reference, but i'm sorry for my bad english. I hope someone can put it better (talk) 12:31, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Explanation of revert[edit]

I am going to again revert Thecheesykid's revert of my edit. Eponymous hairstyles is a logical link for the phrase "named after her character" because "eponymous" means "named after something or someone". YLee (talk) 20:17, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Heya! That should be just fine, it seems like a logical link to me now, the Cheesykid of one hour ago seemed to be totally asinine huh?! What a drufloon! Anyhoo, happy editing. Thecheesykid (talk) 22:00, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Aniston Quote, and a human-interface suggestion[edit]

I found apparent gibberish ("I don't like the look on my personally") in the Aniston quote, so I checked the Allure source, which read "I don't like the look on me personally," This makes more sense, so I changed the quote. On this occasion, I was able to click on the link (holding down the proper mouse button to open a new window) and brought up the source: this is the first time I could do so without saving my changes first. I hope the chanrge means that the WP programmers did the right thing deliberately and not accidentally. I also hope they don't undo this change. I've never brought up the issue, because long experience has taught me not to expect too much of human-interface designers. To be blunt: The WP browser-editor software should allow a human editor to click on a link both when reading and when editing a file. This is good modeless design. Noone should have to save changes until sure of them. Donfbreed (talk) 09:52, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Removed unsourced info[edit]

"The famous 'Rachel' cut remains popular among not just women, but men, to this day. In 2009, music legend Bob Dylan, said to be influenced jointly by Kurt Russell's Snake Plissken character from "Escape from New York", and Aniston's character from Friends, sports the hair style in his rendition of the festive "Here comes Santa Clause"." The info was unsourced so I removed it, but if a reference could be found... That Ole' Cheesy Dude (Talk to the hand!) 17:03, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Scully on the X-Files actually had this haircut before Rachel :/ While the term may not change, the history is different. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:12, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Image still lacking[edit]

A picture would be of great benefit to the 110% of men who don't know what women's haircuts are called.
